Meet the Owners


Long-time Oak Brook residents Dave & Denise Grooms are passionate about providing quality care and boarding services to their friends and neighbors.


After a successful career in the U.S. Army, consulting and information technology, Dave (with Denise's permission) decided to do something 'completely different' for the next phase of his career. "We've lived and worked in Oak Brook for years. Our boys attended Brook Forest Elementary, Butler Junior High and Hinsdale Central. We're love being a part of our local business community." Dave serves on the Board of Directors of the Hinsdale Humane Society and is President and Chairman of the Board of the Three Fires Council of the Boy Scouts of America.


Denise is a busy community volunteer and Scouting Mom. She was the driving force behind buying the successful operation at Green Meadow Kennels and revitalizing it for the future. Denise adds, "We run the business and personally care for your pets. Drop by anytime and you'll find us, our sons and 'Roxie' the Puggle looking after your best friends."


Denise gets the final word (as usual). "We're a pet-loving family and we'll care for your pets as if they were our own. We live right here in Oak Brook and take seriously our responsibility to care for your pets."
